Best Commercial Tri-Planer/Tri-Plainer Machine - Power Plate

Power Plate is known for their commercial machines. We do not however recommend Power Plate's home machines because we found them to be very flimsy and weak feeling. They do not have the quality feeling their commercial machines have plus they only have one vibration speed and instead come with rubber pads to change vibration settings, which is not very desirable. Visit their website: www.powerplate.com
**UPDATE 2010 - Power Plate redesigned their home units and made them sturdier, unfortunately they still only have one speed.

5 star rating
Best Home & Commercial Oscillating Machine - VibraSlim

VibraSlim wins hands down for their home & clinical machine. Their machines are very well designed, solid, quiet and powerful without the hefty price tag of some of it's competitors. These machines impressed all that trained on them and had the highest customer satisfaction of all machines tested. VibraSlim also offers a two year warranty that gives its customers peace of mind.

Best Vibration fitness machine buyers guide 2010 and reviews of vibration therapy platforms - whole body vibration information

Varicose veins, while not a great health risk, can be extremely painful and self-conscious with their somewhat unsightly appearance. There are many things that can be done for varicose veins, including surgery, wearing tight-fitting leggings, and alternative medicine and home remedies. However, vibration fitness plates can be an incredible way to exercise and get treatment for your varicose veins all at the same time! 
Varicose veins occur when blood from your legs gets pumped up to the heart through valves that stop the blood from returning to the legs. When the circulation becomes poor, the valves leak and varicose veins appear. The use of a whole body vibration plate helps increase blood circulation and blood flow, making the valves stronger aiding in the circulation of blood throughout the body. This increased blood circulation also helps the blood return to the legs, which also prevents the appearance of varicose veins. Using a vibration exercise machine on a regular basis and incorporating exercises that are specially designed to get the heart pumping can greatly help with the prevention of varicose veins and the appearance of veins once they start forming.

Take Advantage of the Health Benefits from Whole Body Vibration Machines EOS-6600 Body Master

Knowing how exactly the whole body vibration exercise works will give you a better perception of how the body vibration equipment functions. When we say whole body vibrations exercise, we simply refer to the body muscles being exercised in such a way that instability is triggered in the human body. Contracting and reflexive muscle actions are forced upon the muscles with every vibration produced by the body vibration equipment. This action ranges from at least 25 to at most 50 times for every second. These contractions must be compatible with the way the human body is designed and capable of doing which is to work in multiple dimensions. These continuous action of contractions and reflexes results in a tough workout inducing increased power and strength. Beware of Crazy Slim: V3 & V6. dzt, fitness EOS-6600 Body Master vibration exercise machines.

Research and further studies have likewise proven that with body vibration exercise and the vibrating equipment altogether will stimulate the use of idle and unused muscles even with elderly patients. This combination of a good workout awakens their sense of balance and improves mobility. Both results are in themselves factors that bring about more health benefits to the patients such as psychological improvement in their sense of well-being - Crazy Slim V3 & V6 - t-zone vibration fitness machine.

The new wholebody Vibration Exercise Machine is designed with rubber exercise straps with an improved ability to enhance training results. The whole machine is dependent in the wholly body vibration concept. With whole body vibration varying vibrating frequencies are sent through the body’s various systems—muscular, skeletal, glandular, and nervous systems, which is practically then entire body system. Unlike the traditional gym training that uses large amounts of physical strength to improve one’s well-being, the whole body vibration technique makes use of lower frequencies and still causes healthy effects on the body functions. Generally the whole body vibration technique is ideal for warming up, cooling down, and for strength training, while higher frequencies are for the enhancement of the body’s blood circulation to the stimulation of the body’s peripheral tissues. With the vibrating plate, Koehler Rating vibrations are sent through the feet or hands. The body, in turn, adjusts to these stimuli and responds with a corresponding stretch reflex, a reflexive adjustment occurring in the brain that further sends out neuro-regenerative effects as it is rejuvenated and a healthier mental state is restored.

A Guide to Buying Whole Body Vibration Machines

What are the different types of vibration machines? Buying Best Vibrating Fitness Equipment Review

Oscillating (Pivotal or see-saw) - Best for fitness, therapy & health
Oscillating Vibration (1 to 10 mm) is the most natural vibrating movement and has the widest range of benefits. By combining the benefits of stretch-reflex inducing vibration found in the Tri-Planer vibration machines with the natural flowing movement in the horizontal massagers. People find this type of machine most comfortable and it makes sense that muscles are activated alternately as they would be in walking. This is by far the most popular type of vibrating machine and is widely used by trainers and doctors across the USA. This type of vibrating fitness machine is suitable for all ages and health levels.
Tri-Planer-Tri-Plainer Vibration (Lineal) - Best for specialized training
Very high frequency vertical micro-vibrations (1 to 4 mm) are created by this machine. This style of machine can be uncomfortable for some users and is used mainly for high level fitness training. Some use tri-plainer machines to rest their feet on if they are in a wheel chair for example. Others perform sit ups and squats on the machine. Tri-planers are not recommended for those that are not in top shape and can be very uncomfortable for older users.
Vibration buyers review
Horizontal Vibration - For therapy - Not very popular
Used lying on your back, this movement works from the feet and creates a natural rhythmic movement through the body. Imagine the pattern of movement of a fish's tail propelling it through the water. This is an enjoyable natural movement but is limited in function compared to an upright platform. The advantage is that the units are small and they can be use by people unable to rise out of bed. These are the least popular type of vibration machine and are mainly used for people with extreme health conditions.

What should I look for in a Vibration Exercise Machine?

Buyers Guide Review Continued....

There are many important features to review when choosing a vibration machine. Here are a few things to look for:

1. Solid Steel and Construction: Cheap steel or plastic will not do. Does the machine look solid? Watch their video of the machine in action? The vibration equipment should be very sturdy.

2. Reputable Company: If you don't trust a company or haven't heard of them, check them out. Make sure it is not just a guy reselling vibration machines out of his house. BEWARE this is common! May even have a nice website!

3. Warranty: Does it have a warranty? Again - "how long has this company been around', is the warranty worth anything? Cheaper machines will wear out fast and not put out proper frequencies and power. Will your seller be around to fix it?

4. Maximum user weight: Make sure the machine can handle your body weight. Further, as cheap machines wear down, they may operate at a lower frequency then indicated, and in the case of lineal vibrating machines, low frequencies can be harmful.

5. Features: Does the vibration machine have at least 15 speeds? Does it have Automated programs?

6. Noise: Many vibrating machines are very loud, even some expensive machines. Check it out.

7. Manuals and Videos: Does the company provide you with a positions guide and user manual? Do they have videos you can watch of the vibration exercise machine in action and demonstrations of the different exercise positions?

8. Who uses their machine? Do any reputable people or professionals use their vibration fitness equipment? If they do not, be very suspicious. If it really is good equipment, why would they not use it?

9. Delivery: How long does it take to get the whole body vibration machine? How is it being shipped? Don't buy from anyone that wants 4 - 8 weeks to deliver the fitness machine - usually infomercials.

10. Fake Ratings - A few websites have fabricated a rating system called a "Koehler Rating" which has absolutley no merit or real meaning at all. Koehler Rating is not an industry standard whatsoever and is simply a marketing gimmick.

Review and Check out each and every point BEFORE you buy and you will not regret it!

If using a vibration exercise plate can help improve bone density, than it only makes sense that people suffering from osteoporosis would also be able to reap the benefits of a vibrating plate. However, because the bones in these people are so frail, it’s important that certain steps are taken to ensure that they do not aggravate their condition or worse, fracture any bones. Here’s how people suffering from osteoporosis can get the most out of a whole body vibrating plate - t-zone vibration machine not included.
1.) Consult with your doctor. This is important before you do anything. Your doctor will be able to tell you what kind of vibration exercises will help with your condition; they will take an x-ray, and most likely perform a bone density test. This is all to determine what areas are most affected by the condition and how a vibration plate would be able to help. Your doctor can also help determine which type of vibration exercise machine you will need and may be able to recommend certain models.
2.) Consult with a professional. Once you have an idea of the kind of machine you are looking for and what areas you need to focus on, you can begin to look at machines. Make sure that whichever retail you’re buying from has many vibration fitness models within your specific criteria and that they will allow you to test them all before making your decision. Then you can be sure that you will love it just as much at home and that you really will reap the benefits!
